Nationally Acclaimed Presenters
Trusted by those you trust
"New Detroit's Leadership Series on R.A.C.E. has been such an
incredible experience! Each presenter has been so knowledgeable, and each
session has been very valuable. Each presenter also brought a unique teaching
style and various activities to help us put our learning right to use. I feel
more confident in talking about race and will continue to put all of this
tremendous learning into practice. This is not only incredibly useful in my
work, but also in my personal life as I continue to fight to dismantle white
supremacy from all of our systems. Thank you so much, New Detroit!"
